Oaklands House, London
James Blake Associates has been commissioned to produce stage 3 planning drawings for a commercial/residential three building development including 10 rooftop gardens and communal space with adoptable highway. This scheme will be the first of many to be signed off by the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC).
Following on from the stage 3 approval, work began on the detailed hard and soft landscape proposals. This includes construction details, sections and setting out plans for all rooftop gardens, and ground floor public realm.
The design provides a robust and flexible solution with safe and welcoming entrances, while satisfying Part M and ensuring DDA compliance.
Key areas include relaxing, sitting, and recreational space for children (ages 2 to 12+).
The project also benefited from a full spectrum of landscape design including lighting and automatic irrigation.
